Intergenerational learning can facilitate wisdom seeking. In this workshop we will engage diverse participants to consider what the components of a university-wide and community course might be to enhance collective and practical wisdom necessary to address the great challenges we face as a species, such as social inequity and climate change. We will explore concepts like life-long learning, systems thinking, brain science, relationship leadership. positive aging, global ethics, the art and the humanities, digital storytelling, organizational development, as well as participant developed topics.
